Susan Collins "explodes" over broken promise [View all]

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/2/10/1740368/-Politico-Susan-Collins-explodes-at-broken-promise-to-hold-vote-on-guaranteeing-health-insurer-pay??detail=emaildkre

According to Politico, Susan Collins is shocked to discover that the White House has broken a promise to her.

The White House had promised Collins, a moderate, that it would seek a vote before recess on guaranteeing payments to health insurers in order to stabilize Obamacare markets, a key issue for her. But under intense opposition from pro-life groups and from House conservatives, no such vote materialized.

Collins berated Short for reneging on the deal and then walked off after Short tried to explain, according to two people familiar with the exchange.

I was disappointed the deadline slipped, Collins told POLITICO in an interview.

Collins is an absolute idiot.
